Washington: US President Joe Biden has a tight schedule today, on his first full day in the White House, after taking office as the 46th president of the United States, Prensa Latina publishes.

The Democratic president this Thursday could approve provisions related to the Covid-19 crisis and the reopening of schools and businesses, among many other decisions that he must make on this day, according to the White House chief of staff, Ron Klain. .

A first impulse after being sworn in on Wednesday allowed him to sign the first executive orders and thus fulfill his promise to undo the policies of his predecessor, Donald Trump, who was absent from the opening ceremony of the new administration.

Yesterday, Biden signed 15 executive orders and two other directives, including a provision that makes the use of face masks and social distancing mandatory on federal property, followed by a resolution that re-commits the United States to the Paris Agreement, to help mitigate climate change, as promised in his campaign.

In an article published this Thursday, the USA Today newspaper points out that the ruler from his first hours in the Oval Office, and even long before, maintains his message to the nation of unity in order to regain balance after the divisive attitude of Trump and for this he adopted the first provisions aimed at fulfilling his commitments to the electorate.

Biden announced the reincorporation of the country to the World Health Organization (WHO), from which his predecessor began to withdraw last year, after accusing that entity of incompetence and giving in to Chinese pressure due to the pandemic, allegations rejected by Beijing and by that global entity.

In that sense, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the new government’s main medical adviser on Covid-19, informed the WHO executive board that the incoming president will issue a directive on Thursday to specify the United States’ intention to join the Covax Facility , a project to bring vaccines against this disease to people in need around the world.

Fauci also said that the United States will pay its financial obligations to the WHO.

At the level of immigration policy, Biden also has a titanic task awaiting him and for this the administration of him begins with the sending to Congress of his 2021 Citizenship Law project.

If approved, this legal text would create an eight-year citizenship process for nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States, expand the use of new technologies to strengthen border security, and provide assistance to Central America as part of an effort to address the root causes of migration from the region.
